Coral redang island resort:
We arrived here after our trip to Borneo and since the land & sea transport would consume lots of our tight scheduled time we paid some more and flew from KL on an hour flight with Berjaya air. Everything went smoothly after landing and in 15 min we were transported first by car to marina and then with boat to the resort on Pasir Panjang beach. We checked in in superior room with extra bed which was not big, but we all fitted in (3+child of 3). Our son slept with us in bed, friend slept on extra bed. The rooms are one year old and they are sufficient for the needs on such a small asian island. But the mosquitoes are really pain in the ... The room was full of them and you can forget about sitting on the porch at the evenings if you don't want to get eaten alive. One thing we really missed was more seafood dishes on the menu and BBQ, because this is sty we can't wait to eat while on the islands.
The staff is really a big plus here; they went all the way when my wife needed to be transported to the mainland due the medical emergency. They've found a boat in few minutes and also arranged the land transfer to hospital in KT since the ambulance was late. One of the staff personal was with us all the time, even in the doctor’s waiting room. Since we had to stay in KT (there was no ferry back to the island that afternoon) he also took us to a nice hotel where we spent a night and then arranged the return to the island next morning. He picked us up from the hotel and went with us back to the island. And at the end they didn't charged us for any of this transportation. We are extremely grateful for all the help they have provided.
Redang itself is full of chines couples and groups on snorkeling trips and most of westerns are in laguna resort&berjaya resort. But this didn't bothered us since this is Asia after all :) we were little disappointed of all the garbage lying on the beach (even big pieces of broken glass!!!) and in the water. There is also all day long beach traffic of tractors carrying all sort of things up and down and a lot of boats scattered through the entire beach which can easily make you forget that you are actually laying on one of the most beautiful beaches in this part of the world. Otherwise the waters around are really crystal clear, azure, warm and full of marine life so kids will enjoy it.
